The fire was called in around 4:20 a.m. at a home in the 9500 block of Espada Road, not far from Roosevelt Avenue and Loop 410.

A woman who lives inside the trailer next door was able to get out safely and was not harmed, fire officials said.

The cause of the fire is not currently known. A damage estimate was not given.
